Emergency Dentist West Kelowna

What do I do for an after-hours dental emergency?

When you are in pain or experience serious discomfort because of a dental issue, please do not wait with seeking help. Waiting always makes things worse, and more expensive. When you are in Kelowna, we provide dental emergency help.

Any dental emergency that happens outside of our normal business hours still requires professional attention. If you’re a patient of record, we ask you to contact our office and follow the message prompts. Be sure to leave a detailed message regarding your dental emergency.

If you’re experiencing severe bleeding or a possible broken jaw, you should go straight to the emergency room.

Can you go to the dentist without insurance?

Yes. Even if you don’t have dental insurance, it can be worth the minimal investment to pay for preventative care services like checkups and cleanings on a routine basis. With ongoing exams and prevention-based strategies, you can limit the risk of developing treatments that require a bigger investment to address.

At Health and Beauty Dentistry, your emergency dentist in Kelowna, we will file your insurance on your behalf, to help you access the coverage you’re entitled to. That way if you have a sudden toothache or dental emergency that needs treatment the same day, you don’t have to delay your care.

A common misconception about the cost of emergency dental treatment is that if the tooth doesn’t hurt, you can put the procedure off. Unfortunately, delaying necessary treatment can lead to compounded issues and additional treatment needs. So instead of only needing a small filling, that cavity has now evolved into an abscessed tooth that requires a root canal or extraction. It’s always less expensive to correct dental issues earlier on.

Can I go to the hospital for a dental emergency?

dental emergency kelowna

The only times you would want to go to the hospital or emergency room for a dental issue is if you have a suspected broken jaw, facial fractures, uncontrollable bleeding, or facial swelling. Common dental emergencies like broken and knocked out teeth should be addressed by a Kelowna emergency dentist.

If you’re in severe pain and can’t get in touch with a dental provider, your physician or an emergency room can provide you with temporary pain relief. However, any medication (such as antibiotics or pain reliever) will not address the long-term effects of the situation. The key is to get you out of pain as quickly as possible until you can see a dentist.

The best thing to do if you have a dental emergency is to call our Kelowna dentist’s office and have us walk you through what to do next. In rare situations surrounding serious injuries, we may direct you to proceed to the emergency room. Otherwise, it’s best to visit our Kelowna Dental Emergency Office the same day for immediate care.
